We discover the meanings embedded in the handkerchief:
Leontovych was a composer and music teacher, so the image of a musical state accompanied him constantly: almost all pages of his rather difficult life were written with music and notes.
Leonotovych wrote the choral arrangement of the Ukrainian folk song Shchedryk, which became the most popular carol in the world. A bright traditional attribute of the Christmas caroling ceremony is the Christmas star, which is also called the nativity scene.
This bird is a symbol of peace and freedom. His image appears in Leontovich’s composition ‘Oh, pigeons are humming in the garden’
